Robert Moog

Date de naissance: 23. mai 1934
Date de décès: 21. août 2005

Robert Arthur « Bob » Moog , né le 23 mai 1934 à New York et mort d’une tumeur cérébrale le 21 août 2005 à Asheville en Caroline du Nord, est un ingénieur électronicien américain, docteur en électronique, fondateur de la marque éponyme.

Avec Donald Buchla, il est considéré comme l'inventeur du synthétiseur .

Après des études en électricité et en ingénierie, il répare avec son père des Thereminvox. En 1964, l’un de ses clients, Herbert Deutsch , un professeur de solfège et compositeur, lui commande un modèle de synthétiseur à monter en kit. Il le rend plus compact et ajoute la commande par tension de l’oscillateur, du filtre et de l’amplification. Le son joué n’était plus linéaire mais évolutif.

Présenté lors d’un congrès de l’Audio Engineering Society en 1964, son appareil rencontre un succès qui lui permet de se lancer dans une fabrication à plus grande échelle.

Citations Robert Moog

„The more you get into material and matter, all you realize is in matter, there is energy. There is a blur between energy and consciousness. All material is conscious to some extent or another. All material can respond to some extent or another to vibrations of energy that is different to energy you learn about in physics.“

—  Dr. Moog

From the film Moog (2004)
Contexte: The more you get into material and matter, all you realize is in matter, there is energy. There is a blur between energy and consciousness. All material is conscious to some extent or another. All material can respond to some extent or another to vibrations of energy that is different to energy you learn about in physics. There are all sorts of reliable information now on people and animal being able to be able to effect the operations of machines—even of computers—and I think that has great implications for what goes on between a musician and his instrument. There is a level of reality where there is no time, and there is no space, there is just energy. And we have contact with that through the intermediate layers, so, if the right channels—if the right connections are established, I don’t see why a piece of matter, a piece of broken glass or and old record can’t make contact through this very high level of reality that has access to everything past and future. I suppose my instruments do retain some sort of memory of me. I know that when I’m working on them I feel (not explicitly, I don’t hear voices in my head or anything) that I’m making a connection with it. The circuit diagram, that is then converted into a circuit board, which then becomes a part of an instrument is something that is a record that I made. So I guess in that sense it is something that is certainly a memory.
